Contemplative Movement engages our physical selves in spiritual practice to promote wholeness, balancing activity with stillness.
The practice is accessible by all body types and experience levels. Chairs, mats, cushions, straps, blocks, eye and bolster pillows are available. Each practice may contain elements of body awareness, yoga, prayer walks, breath work, biospiritual focusing, prostration, and silent meditation. Often we mindfully engage all the senses through essential oils, sounds, texture, and mind-body awareness.
When cultivated through regular practice, Contemplative Movement is a holistic body-mind training to ease us into meditation and contemplation. It also helps us to engage our whole selves in our spiritual life.
The practice may draw on the yogic tradition to prepare the body, mind, and spirit for meditation. Our hour long practice will conclude with 20-30 minutes of silent meditation.
Intergenerational Contemplative Movement happens the third Friday of each month. Children are welcome to accompany a practicing adult. Come play like a child, be present in this moment, and be filled with a youthful spirit. Intergenerational classes are 30-45 minutes in duration and have much shorter periods of silence.
Suggested donation of $5.
